ORLANDO, FL (April 26, 2016) – Aktion Parks announced the return of slalom skiing to the Orlando Watersports Complex (OWC) boat lake partnering with hall of famer and water ski legend, Wade Cox.
This partnership will allow skiers the opportunity to train with Cox behind the industry leading Ski Nautique 200 on a brand new slalom course. OWC’s long history of waterskiing and its centralized location paired with Cox’s unique coaching style will provide skiers the convenience of professional instruction at a quality site just minutes from the airport and other Orlando landmarks.
One of the most successful slalom skiers of his era, Wade Cox’s legendary career boasts 47 professional slalom victories including three Masters’ championships and a former U.S. national slalom record.
Wade Cox commented, “I have many great memories skiing at OWC during my professional career, including a crazy runoff with Andy Mapple, which makes this partnership that much more special for me.” “I’m super excited to share my passion and knowledge of the sport behind the wheel of the best slalom boat on the market – the Ski Nautique 200,” Cox added.
Coaching sessions will be available Tuesday through Friday from 8am to noon, or by appointment. A 30-minute coaching session with Cox will cost $80 and can be booked online at www.aktionparks.com/ski or by calling OWC at 407-251-3100.
